Happy birthday to Kirk Douglas

May you live to 120!

He was born poor in the same upstate region of New York as my father, and he's a prime example of not letting what you're born into dictate the limits of your life. There just aren't any more actors like him.

But this is the most important thing to note about a very fine man: "In addition, Douglas has been a long-time humanitarian and a benefactor of the Los Angeles Mission shelter, where he and his wife, Anne, were on hand last month to help serve 4,000 Thanksgiving dinners to the homeless."
